Quilt Show in the Garden

Last weekend I attended the Fine Art of Fiber show at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Lots and lots of pretty quilts in a beautiful garden setting. I've missed going the past couple of years because of the pandemic. Haven't been to any quilt shows for a looong time so this was fun.

The quilting on this one intrigued me.


The quilts on display were mostly modern designs but I came home with this antique/vintage one. I've always had a plan to reproduce this block someday. And now it's done for me! 

The day was a bit dreary and overcast but the bright and lively quilts inside provided a lovely balance. 

This tree sparkled!

Thank you Kathy. Ive never come across the block on the pink vintage quilt. It’s very interesting.

Always so inspiring to visit a quilt show. I am always full of ideas when I get home, I hope you had the same. Love the tree, so pretty in fall colors.
